Hi everyone! I’m a tad late posting this morning, still trying to catch up May work and figure out how it can already be June. @_@
Last night, after I received the animated banner posted above, I decided to acknowledge the tremendous assistance I receive from Michael Hart of Booknibbles.com. My banners for FaceBook as well as my awesome website, and the sophisticated presentation of my quarterly Dreamcatcher eZine, all come from his creative genius.
I’m getting ready to order some gift mugs for Trouble In Disguise (designed by Michael) but I can’t decide which to order: A) the Eclipse Heat banner above as a wraparound watermark background or B) the white background.
What do you think? Vote for A or B in a comment and go in a drawing to win a mug and an ecopy of Trouble In Disguise!
Oh, and by the way, Trouble In Disguise comes out June 5 (Wednesday of this week). I hope you’ll check it out. I really love this story. Deacon’s a solemn cynic until a miracle seduces some sense into him. 🙂
An Eclipse Heat novel.
Since both his partners have married and retired from the hunt, Deacon McCallister is alone when he visits the Pleasure Dome, an infamous brothel in Fort Worth’s Hell’s Half Acre. He’s tracking a counterfeiter but what he finds is TROUBLE—dressed in a man’s ruffled shirt and nothing more.
Bounty hunter Miracle Beauregard pretends to be male, calls herself Beau and for years has fooled the general public concerning her gender. But underneath Miri’s disguise, beats a feminine heart in lust for Deacon McCallister. Though she spends a lot of time dreaming about her rival, she never expects to act upon her longings.
When Miri follows an outlaw to the fanciest whorehouse in Texas and crosses paths with her heart’s desire, she trades her buckskins for bare skin to play the part of Deacon’s paid companion.
Inside Scoop: Miri figures wrong when she thinks one taste of Deacon will be enough and quickly discovers her undercover lover has forever on his mind.
A Romantica®/Lawless erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
“You were a virgin,” Deacon repeated as if that had some significance she’d overlooked.
“Was. Not anymore.”
“I don’t bed virgins,” he declared.
“Too late,” Miri answered and took the last strawberry from the dish to nibble while he said what he had to say.
“When I next see Beauregard, I’m going to kick his ass from here to Sunday. This is the second time the toad-eater has sent you into danger. You will leave this den of iniquity with me in the morning. Dammit, this has got to stop. Do you understand?”
“Yes.” She bit down on the strawberry, wishing the flood of sweet juice would erase the bitter taste of regret in her mouth.
“Fine. Come to bed. We’ll sleep and then sort things out tomorrow.” His tone lost its autocratic menace and a half-smile curved his lips. He moved her back to the bed and took charge. And she let him. He was tender, rough, giving, demanding and everything Miri had ever imagined he’d be.
“Feel good?” he whispered in her ear as he cupped her mound, parting her folds and playing in her wet heat.
Good doesn’t do it justice. Sliding her long mane to one side, she exposed her neck to his lips. She was greedy for sensation. “Don’t be gentle,” she ordered him.
New though she was at this, Miri reached behind her and clasped his cock, guiding it toward her entrance. She felt him shudder and groan as she fisted her hand around him and pumped his hard length. He brought her to her knees, pressed her shoulders to the mattress and lifted her hips.
She wasn’t quite sure what came next. For a moment she felt like a fool with her bottom waving in the air and her sexual center exposed.
But when he teased her, rubbing his shaft against the tender flesh inside the lips of her sex, she moaned her approval. Then he brushed the end of his cock against her pearl, making it pulse with need. She was embarrassed at the amount of liquid emissions her body produced. “I’m dripping. Maybe you should dry—” He thrust.
Miri turned her face into the mattress and screamed. When Deacon froze she whispered fiercely. “That was a good sound not a bad. I’m a big girl and I won’t break. I want this. Don’t stop.”
